BootDevice Not Found - Hard Disk (3F0)

HP Recommended
Elitebook x360 1030 g2

Recently due to some  issues on an

HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2 (ENERGY STAR)


[Personal Information Removed]


It started complaining about 


"BootDevice Not Found


"Please install an operating system on your hard disk.


"Hard Disk - (3PO)


"F2 System Diagnostics


"For more information, please visit:


Because of the issue mentioned earlier, I suspected the SSD may have failed, so I decided to replace the SSD with a newer (and larger) drive which is a "Crucible" SSD which indicated was compatible with the HP laptop device.


Since this is a new drive, there is no OS present on it yet, but the expectation is to re-install fresh Windows 10 setup.


Following installation, continued to receive message like the previously mentioned.


I've tried:

(1) Running the Diagnostic tests on the system (Memory Passed but Hard Drive fails to recognized)

(2) Obtained the UEFI and attempted further diagnostics all of which passed but still did not recognize the drive

(3) Updating the Bios to the latest and still no luck

(4) Using the Media Creation Tool to try to installed Windows 10 on the drive however this also does not recognize the drive.


I am close to the point of giving up but was hopeful someone here might have some suggestions.
